In far off Zanzibar …

Paradise on a crescent beach of sherbet white sand. Domed pavilions straddle the ridge. Views filled with dreams of the spice routes. Exotic, exclusive, remote and relaxing. The name of this slice of heaven? Kilindi. Perhaps it’s Swahili for perfect………

  

  

  

  

A perfectly styled apartment

Posted on Thu, 10 Jun 2010 by KiM

A while back during a random google search I came across a feature on the Australian website mecho of a modern beach style apartment in Clovelly, Australia. Styled by Allison Warner and photographed by Natalie Hunfalvay, the following photos are so beautiful and the spaces soooo perfectly styled. Simply gorgeous.

Pleasant surprises come in all forms including comments on blogs that lead to websites and on to gorgeous rooms. I love the casual natural mix part costal, a little french, a little farmhouse, lots of earthy textures and relaxed family style of these spaces by interior designer Lyndsy Woods of L Kae Interiors. So livable and so lovely. And I found her because of a comment. Don’t you love the internet?!

The old adage is true especially if this “fisherman’s shack” is in your price range. OMG the view, the boathouse, the wonderful retro vibe of the main house. If you buy this for $4 million (yes! that’s not a typo) please spend a little more on the interiors (or employ a better photographer AND a stylist for the next photo shoot) to make the dream complete. I can tell you I won’t be the new owner! Just a little too out of my price range. Link here while it lasts.

This post has been brought to you by sunny Australia where it’s warm and wonderful. Sorry all those under a blanket of thick wet snow. I’m so cruel 😉

Kara Mann

It’s been quite some time since Jo blogged about the interior design work of Chicago based Kara Mann. I thought I’d take another peak at her creations, which “reflects a luxury lifestyle with clean lines, warm layers and timeless designs”. This time it’s an ocean front villa that appears to be a little slice of heaven (inside and outside). *sigh*
